Help The Old Age Parents

In India, women have to suffer discrimination right from birth, including lack of access to proper diet, education, employment, right to inherit property, health care, when and whom to marry, basic minimum wages and social security. Social security benefits for widows are few and paltry, and non-existent for separated or abandoned women. The number of senior citizens in India is projected to reach 15.87 crores in 2025. A higher proportion of elderly are expected to be women (the sex ratio of the elderly is projected to increase to 1,060 women to 1,000 men by 2026).
  • It follows from the above facts, that elderly women are in greater need of senior citizen’s homes than men. Sadly, government-funded homes and charity homes offer a minimum level of shelter and food. Old-Age Homes should a Place to Live in Dignity, not a place where an elder is sent away to die.
  • Social Activist Collectively is proud to announce that we have reached one more new milestone with the launch of Happy Old Age Home for neglected destitute elderly persons. The residents have been identified from different village of many Districts, India. Currently twenty elderly women are sheltered in the home.
  • At Social Activist Collectively Home for the Aged, we have adopted good practices in order to provide a healthy, productive and participatory life to the elderly women residents.
  • The caregivers who are always available, and encouragement of a support system among residents to make them more self-sufficient help to dispel lack of self-worth, loneliness and helplessness. The children from our orphanage often visit the home to share snacks, play games, or talk with the grannies. This initiative engenders a feeling of community and joy in living among both the orphans and elder.
  • There is space for Pooja for daily prayers and all major festivals are celebrated. The women are motivated to keep themselves busy with activities like reading, regular walks, singing bhajans, and more.
